This weekend I was a total slob bitch, and while wanted to hang out with people, I didn’t feel up to it and needed a break, so we stayed home pretty much the whole weekend. I’ve just done something social for what seems like every weekend for a month or two straight, and while some people might be fine with that, the anti-social kernel of my being resists this sometimes. What makes matters worse is that I have plans for the next 4 weekends which involve travel… (Jersey, Rochester, Vermont, New Mexico).
We did go out with the SNFC to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory last night… Want my short review? The creation of this film was pointless exercise.. It didn’t really do anything better than the original film, and while the remake was closer to the text of the book, I think it just missed the mark…
Corinna and I have tickets to a free preview screening of The Devil’s Rejects on Wednesday. We both enjoyed House of 1000 Corpses, so hopefully Mr. Zombie will do a good job again.
I’ve been slowly going through and tagging my entries, starting at the beginning, back in June of 2000. So far I am up to February of 2001, and I’ve been at it for a week or two now.. I have almost 2200 posts total, so this is going to take awhile. The most popular tags are school (73), travel (42), csh (41), and whining (37), but that’s mostly a function of time (I was still in school in 2000-2001, so there are obviously going to be lots of school posts… :P). I suspect at the end of this tagging fiesta whining will win out.
After work last night I headed out to Harvard Square to see a free, in-store performance by Nobukazu Takemura at Other Music. I hadn’t heard of this artist before, but what I heard was pretty good. I met up with some friends there and we went to eat some Indian food after the in-store. I bought a few used CDs and singles in addition to the Tool and Weezer cd’s:
I got a great deal on all of them, but all in all I spent way too much on CDs yesterday… Give me a break though, I have been utterly poor since October. :) For a change I am not leeching money off of my parents, so I needed to celebrate payday somehow.
So far I have given a first listen to the Tool, Weezer, Squarepusher, Matmos discs (I already had a dub of the Coil disc), and I am not disappointed with any of my purchases. I am listening to the Autechre disc now, and so far it seems pretty good.
I went to bed rather early last night, but I didn’t sleep well the night before, so I guess that can be explained. It is raining today, which isn’t that bad, because the air-conditioning is still not working right here at work (although there are some HVAC guys here as I write this), so cool days are appreciated… I am actually working on important stuff at work finally, which is a good thing, although I am still in a little bit over my head as far as catching up to this code base goes. It will take a few days to figure out how this all fits together yet.
